Lendi is Australia's #1 home loan platform and we're building technology to take the hard work out of home loans. We're passionate about how technology can revolutionise our industry and solve a key pain point in peoples' lives. 

Current technology for borrowers and mortgage professionals is comically outdated and inefficient. We're changing the landscape in two key ways: first, by giving borrowers the tools that give them control of the most important financial decision of their lives. Second, by saving mortgage professionals from the drudgery of today's tools and making their jobs both interesting and meaningful. 

Our developers and engineers are the key people leading that revolution. 

The Opportuntiy:

Have you got a passion for helping teams move from norming to performing?  Do you enjoy navigating complex technical domains? Are you a strong believer in agile as a methodology not as a doctrine? 

Lendi is looking for an experienced Senior Scrum Master / Delivery Lead to join our technology team. The role is to sit across two salesforce scrum teams. These teams are greenfield building a new LendiGroup salesforce org and require a strong delivery lead to drive greater agile efficiencies and track progress on milestones. The delivery lead will need to be detail-oriented, understand the business problems and make informed and well-educated recommendations to the team.
